Indoor Heated Pool
The Swimming Pool is exclusively available to guests from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm every day of the year but, if these hours don't suit, we can happily alter them by prior arrangement. Overlooking the paddock, the pool is accessed through a separate door from Bon Accueil Coach House patio.
The mild saltwater pool is kept at a temperature of 30ºC. For comfort, the air in the pool hall is dehumidified and set 1ºC above the water temperature and chlorination is via electrolysis, which provides protection from viruses/bacteria without the harshness or smell of added chemicals. Guests are required to remove and replace the pool cover whenever the pool is not being used. This will maintain water condition and temperature, provide a comfortable environment and avoid damage to the building from condensation.
The quality of the pool water is checked regularly and the water and air conditioning is on continually during the pool operating hours. Although the pool is particularly suitable for children (6m by 3.3m and ranging from 0.5m to 1.5m in depth), it's great fun for adults too! The murals on the pool walls were painted by Robert Tedaldi of "Painted Worlds", as recommended by Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, no less!
Next to the pool is a small changing room with shower and a separate WC and basin. There is a further changing area next to this which also houses the sauna cabin.
